Winning bread

I made this bread for my husband to take to work for a potluck. There were raves and requests for the recipe. Whenever another potluck comes up my husbands co-workers beg him to bring the bread.

Terrific Bread

I loved this bread and the chocolate honey butter. I'm not a big chocolate eater but this sounded easy and I had all the ingredients at hand. It turned out wonderful. I will make it again and again. I also like the butter spread on pancakes and buttery crackers.

This bread is so good. I added the chips to the batter as some have suggested and the bread turned out delicious. I'm making more today. I even heat up the slices in the microwave and spread some butter over the slices . My daughter and I just love it.

This bread is moist and delicious. I did not add the nuts and did not make the glaze but it was still one of the best breads I have made. It was easy to make but tasted like it was much more difficult to make. My husband loved it, even on the second day as it stayed moist.
